Blog Question

and creepy.
So I've been doing this bloggy thing for about 6 months and I think I'm starting to get spam... I get lots of anonymous comments on one post from a long time ago that don't make a lot of sense. Some of them do, but not many. And it's always the same post. What is going on? The comments go in the spam folder but I get emailed about them all the time. How do I make it stop? I know captcha could do it but that's a pain in the ass for anyone who actually wants to comment. Do I just deal with the emails or can I make it go away???

Help a newbie blogger out!


  1. Boo! I get a crap ton of spam. Luckily, I have my settings so that I am not notified via email when spam comes through. That's an option in Wordpress. I'm fairly confident Blogger would have something similar, but I don't know how, exactly. I know Shannon at River City Reading is on Blogger and she's beyond nice and really good with tweaks and settings. Or Monika at A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall. Both sweethearts, I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to them.

    1. Thank you for the advice! I'll look into it and see if I can figure it out but if not, I'll ask those ladies. Plus, I always love another good book blog :)
